  • ONE OF THE MANY DISCIPLINES A SANTA CLARA POTTER MUST MASTER IS THAT OF STONE POLISHING. SOME ARE BLESSED WITH GENERATIONS OLD STONES, GATHERED BY A GRANDMOTHER OR GIFTED BY AN AUNT. EACH STONE IS DIFFERENT,AS ARE THE DEFT HANDS THAT GUIDE THEM.

    THIS OLLA SHAPED JAR RELIES SOLELY ON SILHOUETTE AND PLUSH. THE SILHOUETTE IS FIXED BY THE BULBOUS SHAPE. BUT THE POLISH IS A MASTERED SKILL. THIS IS ONE. PHOTOS SHOW THE STONE MARKS LEFT BE THE ARTISAN, TRICIA VELARDE. OF INTEREST IS THE SLIGHT REDDISH CLAY THAT DID NOT ABSORB THE BLACKEN ASH, SO IS SLIGHTLY UMBER IN COLOR. UNIQUE!
